If you’ve ever wondered, while watching what purports to pass as TV news and journalism by some of the popular talking heads, “Are they going for ratings?”, Michelle Wolf thinks you’re on to something. She calls it “Entertainment Explosion!” [NSFW – Language (What can I say? It’s cable.)]
But neither is print media immune from criticism. Here, Michelle gets a lesson from Op Ed about the importance of ALL opinions.
Since our platform is about expressing ideas and ideals instead of cash flow, clicks, or fundraising, we have the freedom to include a wide range of topics and formats that might not work elsewhere. We don’t need or want paid content, promotional materials, or story lines designed to please donors.
So the idea here is to present videos one or more of the editors feel speaks to them. Sometimes it will be news. Sometimes it will be history. And a lot of the time it will be culture. You can not and should not separate these things: it is diversity and intersectionality that makes our movement strong.
